  • Develop powerful partnerships that drive lasting change in the workplace

LONGSTANDING PARTNERSHIPS WITH
FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES

Over twenty years ago, we pioneered the successful approach of engaging white male leaders, a group that has been historically overlooked in diversity and inclusion efforts. Our clients find that bringing white men off the sidelines, and inspiring them to engage in, and manage difficult workplace conversations motivates employees and produces transformative, lasting change — in personal lives and in the workplace.

Testimonials

jeanine-primeIt’s a fact: we can’t promote inclusion while excluding white men. WMFDP understands this all too well.  With decades of experience, few are as skilled as Bill Proudman and Michael Welp at empowering white men to be full partners in the creation of inclusive work climates. Catalyst is proud to call them our partners in helping companies fully realize the goal of inclusion.

kellogg2 White Men as Full Diversity Partners was a powerful experience! Since my participation, I’ve had many moments of conscious reflection about the need to hold paradoxes in our walk thru life. This concept helps me stay open to positive outcomes in cross-racial relations. Another concept that has stayed at the forefront for me is the powerful use of language, like “white male culture” and how it impacts racism, sexism, and all other –isms. There is much work to do in the area of diversity and WMFDP creates a safe space to explore these concepts and take leadership to make necessary changes. I enjoyed working with others from different types of organizations, as well as getting to know my colleague in richer, deeper ways.
